Interesting facts about follow-on milk
Why follow-on milk?
Follow-on milk is a special baby milk formulation that is suitable for babies after 6 months of age. However, there are also follow-on milks that have been developed for babies after 10 months of age. Follow-on milk is very different from first infant formula. Follow-on milks are designed to meet the needs of babies after 6 or 10 months and contain more nutrients such as iron, calcium and iodine. In addition, follow-on formula is more filling than first infant formula. Follow-on milks for babies after 10 months contain complex, long-chain carbohydrates and proteins that can make you feel full. Carbohydrates include starch and maltodextrin, while whey proteins and casein are proteins. It is precisely the ratio of the two proteins in follow-on milk that is important for the feeling of satiety.
